Fiona and Aly had a very special wedding celebration; the first a very intimate dinner reception in Melbourne at the gorgeous Grand Hyatt, followed by a huge celebration in Egypt, Aly’s home country.
I was lucky enough to be asked by Fiona and Aly to photograph the occasion as I am a female photographer, something that made Fiona feel comfortable, and that she felt would comply with her Islamic culture. Fiona had her wedding gown and hijab made especially by a local designer, which was a beautiful blend of traditions!
The Grand Hyatt was the chosen venue for the intimate reception. With 50 guests, comprising of family and friends from Australia, Egypt, Greece and the UK, the atmosphere was amazing. From the lovely quiet dinner, the beautiful speeches made by Aly and Fiona’s brother Jim, to the traditional Greek and Islamic dancing at the end of the night, this was a wedding I will certainly not forget.
I’ve chosen just a few images to share of this culture filled wedding!
Reception Venue: Grand Hyatt, Melbourne
